Being of divine service is a source of immense joy, so how can we do so in the most aligned way? The best way to serve the world is by being true to oneself and one's own authentic beingness. There are benevolent energies operating in the Universe, which some refer to as Consciousness, others call it God, the Universe, Source or some other name. By tuning into this energy within oneself, the rightness for the Whole can be accessed. By finding what is authentic and right within, we can trust that we are doing what is right and aligned for all.
Our notion of being seperate individuals is an illusion, we are all connected to a divine flow emanating from the Source of all things. By tuning in and acting (or not acting) from this connected place - our soul knowing, we may positively contribute to Life as it unfolds all around us. Most of us have had synchronistic experiences and signs that illustrate this connectedness, for example we think of someone and then we meet them or they call or we follow the pull to a certain location and something magical unfolds. We are not alone, this Energy or Benevolence is always supporting us.
Frequently in the spiritual world and in the world in general, we are conditioned as to how we "should" behave and act. From a very young age expectations are placed upon us. Our ideas of what is right and what is wrong become inherent. Yet our soul is ultimately free and unbound by such restrictions. The soul and it's rightful expression is spontaneous and unlimited. Right action doesn't come from the mind or logic or what we have been told or taught by others, it comes from intuitively feeling what is aligned, it comes through our soul. Sometimes we may be drawn to support another, at other times we may feel to leave or assertively challenge a situation.
At times we may feel overwhelmed, depressed or guilty by how little impact we appear to be having or by the current state of the world, however each tiny soul led action can make a difference as the following story illustrates...
Off in the distance, the old man noticed a small boy approaching. As the boy walked, he paused every so often and as he grew closer, the man could see that he was occasionally bending down to pick up an object and throw it into the sea. The boy came closer still and the man called out, “Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?”
The young boy paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean. The tide has washed them up onto the beach and they can’t return to the sea by themselves,” the youth replied. “When the sun gets high, they will die, unless I throw them back into the water.

Your Authentic expression
"You playing small does not serve the world.
Who are you not to be great"
